I would like to introduce you to Bunny. I don't mean this kind of bunny, but my new adopted daughter who I will call Bunny here on the blog.
My husband and I had been working since March to get licensed to Foster to Adopt. Our goal was to be licensed by the end of September after my sister-in-law and niece moved into their new house. We told many of our local friends what we were doing. One of our friends told us about an opportunity for a private adoption, and we decided to try that first. Everything went smoothly and we have now added Bunny to our family. We feel it was meant to be.
Bunny is such a sweet little girl who has quickly become an integral part of our family. She loves her protective big brothers.
She also loves minky just like them. (Sneak peek at a quilt I hope to finish soon.)
I loved seeing her nuzzle the minky the second I laid this quilt on the floor. Some of you may remember her brothers always doing that.
I can tell you that it is already so much fun having a daughter. I have pulled out little girl things I have already made. We have started decorating her room.
I look forward to spending lots of time with my darling daughter and making her more quilty items.
This sweet little poem has been running through my mind lately:
Cleaning and scrubbing
Can wait till tomorrow.
For babies grow up,
We've learned to our sorrow.
So quiet down, cobwebs.
Dust, go to sleep.
I'm rocking my baby,
and babies don't keep.
As you can imagine, our adoption of Bunny has greatly changed our schedules. So until things become more routine, my quilting time is greatly reduced. Blogging will be pretty sporadic. I'll be rocking my Bunny and enjoying our time together.
